In summary, it is hard to find any serious failings with this work, which must rank as one of the finest railway history books of 2020. Well recommended.West Somerset Railway Association
There is a good selection of photographs of collieries and sections of text providing background information about the various locations together with a series of large scale maps and track diagrams. Production is on art paper to a good standard and like the previous volumes in this series anyone with an interest in the Valleys is unlikely to be disappointed.Industrial Locomotive Society
